Head-on crash injures seven on Squilchuck Road


A Tacoma man remains in the Chelan County jail after a head-on crash Saturday outside Wenatchee that injured seven people.

Sheriff’s deputies say 22-year-old Lane Christopher Molina was heading north on Squilchuck Road driving at a high speed in the wrong lane when he collided with an oncoming GMC Yukon.

He reportedly registered a 0.16 percent blood alcohol content, twice the legal limit. Most of the injured, including one person in the Yukon, were treated and released at the hospital.

In addition to DUI, Molina faces charges of vehicular assault and reckless driving.
